Ramen Ya (a.k.a. Kurobuta Isakaya) is a Japanese gastropub located in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal (better known as “Le Plateau”). This is a great place to enjoy delicious Japanese dishes in a casual and lively setting. This spot is always busy!
They have pretty much every type of Japanese food you can think of: soups, noodle dishes, sushi, sashimi, and grilled meats. All reasonably priced.
My usual go-to favorites are the House Special Ramen soup with the Gyoza with hot chilis and a nice cold sake to accompany the meal. Their popular Ramen soups are very flavorful and come with a soft-boiled egg and amazing noodles. They offer customers the choice to create their own soups by providing the option to choose the garnishes and broth. The menu has loads of variety — there’s something for everyone.
They are also well-stocked with a wide selection of Japanese beers and sake. It’s a great place for some Japanese comfort food and “tête-à-tête” conversations. Enjoy!
